This was a very disappointing match and one that we had hoped would have resulted in lots a fish. It was so tough, in fact, that only one carp was caught. Josh took his second Winter league win on the trot catching small F1’s and skimmers on various lines around his swim (peg 10). A late decision to fish long to his right margin saw him catch the only carp of the match and hold off Mark.
Mark was on peg 13 and fished a similar match to Josh, chopping and changing and taking the odd small F1 from various different areas of his peg. Fish wouldn’t settle and feed on any particular line, so rotating lines was vital.
Reigning Winter League champion, Nic Wort, fished peg 18 and did enough to secure third spot to keep the pressure on Josh.
